I'm getting ready to ride the Eagle from FTW to CHI in the next two days. I have been watching OTD on the status maps, and keep noticing the train has been running late, seems to loose time south of STL to Marshall. Any idea what's up with this? Today's #22 in is seven hours late at Arcadia and hasn't reached St Louis yet. It is projected to arrive in CHI five hours late. (The other #21 that is still in Texas is on time, however...). Meanwhile #21 SB is 5hours 41 minutes late in Texarkana. Just wondering if there is flooding or track work going on, or something else.
